continuous present

Sarah Pink (2009). Doing Visual Ethnography. Sage, p.150:

"When a photograph is situated in the present tense and is treated as a realist representation, a particular relationship between the text, the image and the ethnographic context is constructed. The specificity of the photographic moment, set in the past, is lost and instead the photograph is situated in a continuous present."
